Cost-Effective, Versatile Back-To-School Item: The Library Card! 

 Every parent wants their child to succeed, and one of the simplest ways you can help ensure your child’s academic success is by making a quick trip to the library. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Oscar Foss Memorial Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has one of the most important school supplies of all, a free library card. 


Electronic tablets and smartphones can be important learning tools for today’s students, but the most versatile item available to them is the same one their parents and grandparents used, the library card. “While electronic devices offer internet access and study apps, they’re not a substitute for the amazing amount of information that’s available at New Hampshire’s public libraries,” said Michael York, New Hampshire state librarian. “For students, a library card is the single most cost-effective tool they can get to enhance their education.”


The New Hampshire State Library promotes excellence in libraries and library services to all New Hampshire residents, by assisting libraries and the people of New Hampshire with rapid access to library and informational resources through the development and coordination of a statewide library/information system; by meeting the informational needs of New Hampshire’s state, county and municipal governments and its libraries; and by serving as a resource for New Hampshire. For more information, visit www.nh.gov/nhsl


Having a library card from a New Hampshire library allows students access to the 2 million items in our state’s libraries’ collections, including magazines, movies and music as well as books. If a student’s library does not own a particular item, it can often be requested from another library in the state. 


All of our resources and services at the Oscar Foss Memorial Library are available for free to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement. Our library also offers access to important educational internet resources, like e-books and online databases. For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit the Oscar Foss Memorial Library in person or visit the library online at oscarfoss.org.


Microsoft Office Q&A

On Monday, September 15th at 6:30pm there will be an informational program about the basics of Microsoft Office at the library. We will answer questions on anything from formatting a word document, using formulas, saving, backing up files, and sharing your work.  


Please call the library (269-3900) or visit our website (oscarfoss.org) for more information about these or any of our other programs or events. There is always something happening at the Oscar Foss Memorial Library! Library Hours are: Monday; 2pm-8pm, Tuesday & Wednesday; 10am-5pm, Thursday; 5pm-8pm, Friday; 2pm-5pm, Saturday; 9am-Noon.   


Please call the library (269-3900) or visit our website (oscarfoss.org) for more information about these or any of our other programs or events.
